.ORG
Registry Operator PIR Releases Annual Report
Detailing 2018 Results and 2019
Initiatives

Public Interest Registry
(PIR)
released its 2018 Annual
Report
today. The
report highlighted several organizational
improvements
in 2018 including reorganizing the management structure to align with strategic priorities, sharpening efforts to further improve the quality of the .ORG base, maintaining robust .ORG renewal rates, and producing strong financial results in support of the
Internet Society and their work to keep the Internet free and open for all. 

The report also details PIR’s
plans for 2019, which include initiatives aligned with PIR’s mission
“to help educate those who are
making

 

a difference in their communities through the power of .ORG.”

President and CEO Jon Nevett

said, “PIR achieved the ambitious goals we set for ourselves in 2018, thanks in no small part to the inspiring work of the .ORG community. It’s the people and organizations using .ORG to make a positive impact on the world who motivate us to remain diligent in our stewardship of the .ORG
domain. This year, we are in the midst of a number of exciting initiatives aimed at providing even more support for the broad .ORG community and our domain industry partners. These include maintaining .ORG as the most trusted domain extension, amplifying our education and outreach efforts, and continuing to expand our already robust anti-abuse program.”

The
report noted, “2018
was  a solid year for .ORG, from
exceeding financial goals
to continuing to grow a strong user base with high renewal
rates
. These results are a direct reflection of PIR’s commitment to promoting 

quality domains in the .ORG base. In 2019, PIR is building upon these efforts through the launch of the
Quality Performance Index
(QPI)
initiative, which helps reward those registrars who are growing and maintaining trust in the .ORG domain while identifying areas of improvement for registrars when it comes to online trust.”

The Report also
noted, “For 2019, PIR is putting an even greater focus on
combating abuse online and making significant investments in education and outreach
initiatives. PIR also is establishing a
.ORG Impact Awards
program to recognize the incredible work of organizations across the globe, and creating a
PIR Grants Program to connect PIR with highly motivated individuals and groups with mutual aspirations to help them further their missions.”
